of this unfold. but let's bring in our law enforcement analyst here with us in boston. julia, come on over here. >> all right. >> let's talk first of all about john king's reporting substantial progress in the criminal investigation here in boston, significant development. we don't know what that progress is. but you know what, john is joining us on the phone right now. so let's talk to john. john, go ahead and tell us what you can. >> wolf, i'm on my way to you now. i want to report some breaking news information from two sources. one is a boston law enforcement source who tells me they believe they do have a significant breakthrough in the investigation. this source is calling this substantial progress. that source declined to be more specific but said to anticipate more details later today. now, i want to give you some information -- initial information important from a second source who has been briefed on the investigation. and i am told by sources that both governor deval patrick and mayor mannino and after the boston commissioner after one of the briefings this morning went to talk to th
? >> we're told fran townsend has a federal source, i have a boston law enforcement source saying an arrest has been made. that is a dramatic breakthrough. waiting for more information. i was told earlier this morning an operation was under way after they had clearly identified a suspect. the breakthrough came, remember, just last night, we were talking about how much progress they made in the how and exactly when. but they hadn't gotten to the who. i'm told based on a video camera at lord & taylor department store a few blocks from here, based on a video camera from that store fixed on the location from the second bombing, across the street from the second bombing, they got what they were looking for. video analysis showing a male showing up and placing the black bag with the explosive device in it, and because of the video enhancement technology, mostly dprept sto from the department store, they clearly identified a suspect, a single suspect and an arrest has been made. a briefing scheduled for later this evening, obviously. >> so let's reset chronologically. do we know what poi
, for the boston marathon, overall. that includes state police, boston city police, and other law enforcement agencies. specifically we asked questions about if security will disburse. some of the people in the back of the pack are coming across. he said absolutely not, the security levels remain the same until the close of the race at about 4:45 p.m. so learning more about the security from last year. on the surveillance, what we're told is they're asking and co combing through thousands of frames or surveillance video. and so they're looking for media out l o outlets, they have mountains of evidence, merchants along the area, and a restaurant called the atlantic fish company, a crate and barrel there. so a lot of video. you put together the surveillance video with something that a private person shot to establish a time line, that's what experts are telling us. >>> also, this marathon on monday was one of the most photographed events in the nation. >>> we're getting breaking news in right now, letsz 's go to ca costello. >> this is really a concern. a letter addressed to president obama con
it was so hard to talk about. i've talked to doctors and law enforcement officials who have seen a lot of bad things in their day and they have a hard time talking about the carnage they saw yesterday. pamela, thank you very much. >> reporter: we're just getting word into cnn that president obama will make a statement 11:30 a.m. eastern time from the white house briefing room. not sure if it's an update on the investigation, if he has new news. but, again, that statement coming at 11:30 a.m. eastern time. we will of course bring it to you the second it happens. what happened in boston was terrifying for hundreds who were there at the scene when the bombs went off. it's terrifying to look at the video. cassidy brettler witnessed the terror firsthand. this is what she told cnn. >> i don't know. i mean, honestly, i got home last night about 11:00 and started to break down because i had been holding it in all day. i had been trying to remain composed. on social media and video just portray what was going on and tell my story. but by the time i was trying to fall asleep, it was hitting me,
, that recovery could take awhile. so we do know that federal law enforcement has been in there since last night and that they have been thinking about what kinds of charges they want to bring against him. it seems clear there will be federal charges and those will include terrorism. now we don't know exactly what's going on in there. we don't know anything beyond that he's in serious condition. we don't know any other medical or surgical details. jake? >> how intense is the security there? how does a hospital handle security for someone like this? >> it's very intense. there's a big police presence behind me. they are not even letting us go into the lobby to use the bathrooms or anything, which is unusual having done tons of stories like this. they usually let the media go in and out and get a cup of coffee. they reason even allowing that here. i was speaking with a doctor who frequently worked on inmates and suspects in another city. he said under these circumstances it was pretty likely that the suspect would be handcuffed to the bed and have two guards, one on each side of the bed, in additi
law enforceme enforcement. give us a few details of the military hardware you're seeing. >> right now so far it's been split. and i would say the majority of it is being the massachusetts state police, the local campus police are sort of doing perimeter security around the campus as they try to help students get off campus. a lot of students hanging out outside here trying to get a ride home or perhaps someone to pick them up. then we saw the helicopter off in the distance and we know just sort of trying to look through the buildings and the trees, i know it landed somewhere in the interior of the campus. and i know that the dorm -- dzhokhar's dorm is actually over on that other side of campus. i don't know if the helicopter landed near the dorm, but it was definitely on sort of the other side of campus from the entrance where we are and where a lot of the students are coming out. then we saw that huge tactical vehicle from the massachusetts state police roll in after about four to five police cars came through. and then literally like i said just in the last ten minutes off in the di
rights. we gave that information out to our officers and i think all law enforcement was operating under those rules of engagement. >> back to the apartment real quickly. there were devices found in the apartment but you can't comment on what? >> no, i didn't say that. i can't comment on any evidence that was found there. sglp anything that was found in the apartment. are you confident that these two were acting alone and that there are no more suspects out there? >> i'm confident that they were the two major actors in the violence that occurred. i am very, very sure that during this thorough investigation we'll get to the bottom of the whole plot. that's all i can say right now. i told the people of boston that they can rest easily. the two people who were committing these vicious attacks are either dead or in custody. we cleared dozens of packages that had been dropped by people fleeing the scene. so everything was treated suspiciously. in a situation like this, bombers often target first responders so we were expecting another device. we handled that very, very carefully. the eod team
we know from law enforcement officials, stuck around, hung around, lingered. easily found afterward. it doesn't seem like they have expertise to be sociopaths and terrorists and horrible individuals, but they didn't -- they didn't have the wherewithal necessarily to get away. >> that kind of terrorism can occur whether it's international or domestic, tim mcveigh, one or two cohorts and not much else. we do think of things as big conspiracies, it sometimes doesn't happen. >> counterterrorism efforts are always developing. evolution of strategy. assuming this went down as we now believe it did, with two brothers acting alone or in concert with someone else. what adjustments will the law enforcement, counterterrorism community need to make? >> one thing for the american public to suspect, we are a big society with lots of mobility and lots of people coming in and out. there is going to be some level of risk for that, we saw that op monday. but we still had the boston marathon. it begins with our expectations of what kind of safety we have. there is going to be -- we don't know the fact

[ male announcer ] now get 50% off brake pads and shoes at meineke. >>> we're going to get some expert analysis on several aspects of the capture of the suspected boston bomber. this is a former assistant director at the fbi and cnn and cyst and jeff is a security analyst worked for the fbi. these thermal images that we're looking at, the suspect before he was captured. i know what i see but as a law enforcement officer who is to bring this suspect into court and to talk about this, what do you see sna how does this
penalty, he should face the death penalty under federal law. >> this is just kind of case that it should be applied to. in fact, the only other time it has been used since '94 is on timothy mcbay. given the facts i have seen, it would be appropriate to use the death penalty in this case and i would hope they would apply it in federal court. >> reporter: there is growing evidence today that his brother, tamerlan tsarnaev had become incredibly radical. this video of a radical jihadist was posted and then removed from his personal youtube channel. he created it in august shortly after an extended visit to russia. there are increasing questions about how the fbi handled its investigation of tamerlan tsarnaev. they did not follow up after that trip to russia last year. the very latest on the investigation from our crime and justice correspondent, mr. joe johns. joe joins us from washington. joe, no charges today for sure. does it have anything to do with the fact that they haven't been able to talk to him. >> that's an interesting question. you are right. it could be soon for the charges. it
. the latest information that has been -- that we have. all right. a law enforcement official telling us this was -- i want to make sure i put the quotes around where appropriate -- likely but not certain a timing device attached to the explosive device, not activated by a cell phone, someone could have set this up and left before it would have detonated. what can you tell us about that in. >> reporter: that's the sum and substance of it, likely but not certain there was a timing device aattached to the bomb which the reporting described apparently encased in a pressure cooker and discarded there on the street, perhaps to look like trash. and talking to more than one law enforcement source now, what we're being told is the developing picture is one of fancied up pipe bomb, if you will that was really very weak in nature by substantive terms compared to ieds all across the world but placed in this location, with so many people, it caused a lot of injuries. had it been, say, petn or a stronger explosive we would have seen more casualties. being described as a primitive device with a timer
stymied investigators and caused a lot of fear in the law community. >>> we'll begin in texas with search and rescue teams. they are combing through the debris in an incident at the west fertilizer plant. and i did say search and rescue, as the plant continues to smolder this afternoon, authorities are not ready to give up on finding survivors trapped in the rubble from the blast. it could be felt 50 miles away. we don't know yet how many people are missing, but they do include several members of the area's all-volunteer fire department. scores of people were injured in the blast. there's a heavy police presence, of course, in neighborhoods damaged by the blast. only search and rescue teams are being allowed in. there's been one isolated report of looting and many, many reports of neighbors helping neighbor. this all started when the fire broke out in the fertilizer plant in the tiny north central texas town of west, population 2,600. last evening, right as people wrapped up dinner. some drove closer to the plant to watch, that's when it exploded. >> you okay? >> i can't hear. i can't hea
neighborhood had been on lock down, residents terrified as law enforcement went door to door. after the standoff, we spoke with neighbors. here on cypress street, this is one of the houses where police were combing through the neighborhood, looking for the suspect. this is eddie beck's house, he took us through what it was like when s.w.a.t. teams came through here. >> they came in. they searched the living room area, dining room, went through all the bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen area, and -- >> searched cabinets and things like that? >> didn't go through cabinets or anything like that but they did go through all the bedrooms, closet doors, then made their way through the back here. >> reporter: beck shared his own footage of the s.w.a.t. teams combing through his house. during the homes they didn't know where tsarnaev was or whether he was carrying explosives on his body. beck got a chill just thinking about it. >> knowing that they had him sur rounded and so close to our neighborhood, it made us think that he might have been here at night time and they kind of flushed him out into
or not he's able to understand what we would say in the law what's going on, whether he can speak or not. being in fair condition in the kinds of details you've heard about what's gone on in the initial hearings with law enforcement, with magistrate, does it seem as though he's moving in a direct of being able to assist in his own defense? >> yeah, you know, look, when we talk about speech, and this is putting on a medical legal hat, chris, speech is a general term in the medical sense, meaning that it refers obviously to the spoken word. but also the written word, even gestures, even being able to respond to questions, yes or no. but it also refers to the ability to process and understand any kind of speech. so, it appears that he's able to do both, you know. he's able to understand from, again, i'm hearing the same things that you are, but also able to execute some sort of communication as well. and you know, we heard some of the things that he was able to convey yesterday. so what we want, you know, from a medical standpoint, know that someone's who's hearing, yb understanding and exe
, without the tarp on it. law enforcement authorities and others are combing over it, taking pictures of it. that is an active crime scene still. >> his family released a statement that says, our family applaud the entire law enforcement community for a job well done and trusts the justice system will now do its job. none of this will bring our beloved martin back or reverse the injuries these men inflicted on our family. we continue to pray for healing and comfort on the long road that lies ahead for every victim and their loved one. this is him indeed an ambulance last night. now he's under heavy guard where some of the people he allegedly harmed have also been receiving care. we want to go to elizabeth cohen. elizabeth, there are new details about his injuries since i last spoke with you. what do you know? >> reporter: don, these are very details from my colleagues. also what we've learned from susan candiotti. what we've learned is he's had wounds to his throat and also, this is very, very important, it's intubated and sedated. somewhat that means is he has a tube going down his throat
. anderson. >> all right. don. appreciate that. bottom line there, he's communicating with law enforcement personnel via writing. we are getting new information about the wounded suspect. let's go to deborah. >> hi. i'm being told by sources being briefed on the investigation that the 19-year-old suspect is on a ventilator and heavily sedated. every several hours in the care of doctors, an interview team goes into the room to ask the suspect questions. now these questions are pretty much focused, according to my source, on public safety. for example, are there any other bombs? are there any other bomb stashes? are is there any other weapons? he has been been on a ventilator and he is restrained in part because they don't want him to rip the tube out of his throat. we've been hearing law enforcement has been communicating in writing, but what we do know is he is nodding. the responses he is giving are being given by nodding. there appears to be some sort of wound to his leg. it appears due to blood loss. he did have a wound to the back of his neck. it is not clear how that wound was inflict
from your sources? >> i do, chris. talking to federal law enforcement officials, i understand the fbi's emergency response team this is the team that goes to the crime scene, collects all of the evidence, referred to as the ert. they have cleared the crime scene. it doesn't mean it's open. you see the boston pd is still there. the fbi's emergency response team has collected evidence at the crime scene, finish line of the boston marathon and inventorying it, they will look at it and use it to help them prioritize interviews and how they go through, what order, video surveillance camera tapes to identify and link them to the evidence found in at the scene. we also understand from federal investigators that they have not found -- reports early on of ball bearings being used to -- as part of these devices to increase the injuries. federal investigators tell me they have not found ball bearings, but their current theory they are working on, these devices were placed in trash cans and when the trash cans exploded that would have made the shrapnel that caused all of these horrific injuries t
from waco, according to a police sergeant, who is reporting this information. apparently the law enforcement official who has been missing after the blast has been accounted for. it has been accounted for, he's in a hospital in critical condition right now. the texas national guard is monitoring the air in and around the town of west, texas. it's not clear how many people have been exposed to this kind of ammonia. the gas coming from this fertilizer plant. it's a gas used to make fertilizer at the plant. buti but its fumes can be very dangerous. suffocating, can cause blistering, can cause chemical burns if it stays in the body. this is a serious situation, elizabeth cohen, medical correspondent. senior medical correspondent, talk a little bit about the impact of the gas from this kind of fertilizer plant. >> right. we know a lot about this gas, it's often involved in explosions. when crystal meth labs explode, that's ammonia. what it is, if you get a huge big whiff of it and are you exposed to it a lot over time, even quickly it can kill you. however, if you don't get too much o
which the younger brother escaped. according to one law enforcement source, actually driving over his brother's body. here is the brother's uncle in an emotional plea delivered late this morning. >> i say dzhokhar, if you're alive, turn yourself in and ask for forgiveness. and the victims, from the injured and from those who left, ask for forgiveness from these people. >> we already obviously are learning a lot about these two suspects. we know that dzhokhar who is 19 years old, first came to the united states in 2002, he was 8 years old. his family, he came here on a tourist visa. we know with his mother and his -- at least with his mother. let's go back to the aunt now speaking in canada. >> naturally, i guess, you know, whatever i feel will come out. natural. it is so natural. what is so different about it? >> have you talked to police at all or -- >> i haven't talked -- nobody is contacting me. i called fbi first line. fbi line. if you have any hints, let us know. that's the number i called because knowing these two boys, knowing -- believing, strongly believing they wouldn't do t
verbally. he's in the intensive care unit of beth israel hospital here. our susan candiotti citing a law enforcement official with knowledge of the case saying dzhokhar tsarnaev was shot in the side of the neck. unclear whether that came during friday night's takedown of him when he was captured or shootout he and his brother had thursday night into friday morning with police in the streets of watertown. right now no charges were filed today. we heard rumblings there may be charges filed today. ended up not being the case, don. maybe in the next couple of days. >> all right. let's talk about the bombs. you have learned something new, something about where they came from, brian. >> reporter: that's right. our susan candiotti citing a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation says the current thinking right now, don, is the two suspects bought the bomb components locally. somewhere here in the boston area. but that they got the guns from somewhere else. this official emphasizing that the gun traces are under way right now. and so that part of the investigation is continu
senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin as well as litigator and author and harvard law professor alan dirs witsz. with a wounded, sedated and restrained and unmirandized terror suspect. professor, that has to raise just inord nant number of questions. what are your thoughts? >> as soon as a lawyer is appointed the law might begin to challenge that. you may say what's the harm, they have a videotape of him putting the bomb down, they have a statement he made or his co-defendant, his brother, made to the people who hijacked. but it may make a lot of difference. because in order to get the death penalty, they have to prove that he comes within the federal terrorism statute. and that requires very specific kinds of intentions behind the bombing. and if they get the evidence of those intentions during this interrogation even if it's by a nod or something handwritten, the federal court in boston which comprised of a lot of very good judges who really, really operate by the letter of the law may well exclude those statements made without a miranda warning or made while he's not really competent b
or three days while testing continues and law enforcement mess investigates and briefed senators were reminded to warn employees to be very vigilant in handling and processing all mail that comes to offices in the capitol and district offices in their home state. the very first spot for mail is at an offsite facility. that began in 2001 after a couple of senators received letters laced with anthrax. how much of a threat is ricin? ricin is toxic and lethal, but only when injected which is why the department of homeland security considers it category "b," or a lower threat agent as opposed to anthrax, which is much more deadly. >> dana bash reporting. senator wicker has additional security. >>> sports helping boston return to some sense of normalcy and fans in other cities showing their support. let's just say. the red sox in cleveland last night, playing for the first time since the marathon bombings, a moment of silence for victims before the game. this jersey hung in the red sox dugout. boston strong with the city's 617 area code. even the sox' hated rivals had their backs last night
a few officials, one with law enforcement, couple with intelligence, and what we do know is that, of course, this is good news, right? they actually thwarted this plot. we know that it targeted a train route between the united states and canada. one law enforcement official pointed me towards a line that runs between new york city and toronto. it runs actually from buffalo, new york. i'm told that the plan was to detonate explosives in canada. and derail -- and derail the train. and my law enforcement source said there had been some reports that they wanted to wage a spectacular attack, blow up a bridge. he said no. he said what they were doing was to target the train on the tressels, and actually what they wanted to do was derail the train and cause maximum injury to the people on it. >> so two quick follow-ups with you, gloria. first, whether we look at u.s. response here of what happened in boston, canada, an example of it working well, right? coordinated investigation, caught the plot early, and they have been watching it for over a year, haddize izeyes on the si, right? >>
. it seems likely, though not certain, according to law enforcement, that a timer was used. we'll get to all of that in a moment. i want to begin with the reality, for many families that they are dealing with right now. for some, it will be intense therapy, adjusting to a life with fewer limbs. we're seeing a lot of lower limb amputations. today, doctors spoke of being forced to finish the job of the bombs, amputating people's legs to save their lives. the latest at this hour, three people known dead. at least 174 injured, including 23 people who are critically injured. the stories of loss and pain, we keep learning new details. one runner's camera was rolling as she approached the finish line. take a look. as loud as that blast was, it was into silence that another witness felt the full impact of what she survived. >> i got home last night, at about 11:00, and started to break down because i had been holding it in all day, i had been trying to remain composed, but by the time i was trying to fall asleep it was all hitting me, this is really real and waking up this morning and realizing, it
questioning him since yesterday. there is some form of communication between law enforcement and the suspect we believe in writing. pamela brown is outside the hospital for us, she's joining us now. what is the latest on tsarnaev's condition? >> reporter: the latest is that he remains here at beth israel deaconess medical center in serious condition. he is still in the intensive care unit handcuffed to his bed 24/7 monitoring by law enforcement officers. we are told that he is intubated and sedated with a gunshot wound to the neck. so it appears that he is still pretty out of it. wolf. >> doctors are telling us that tsarnaev could put something -- could be getting something that's described as a sedation holiday. i know you've been checking with medical personnel over there. what does that mean? >> reporter: well, i've been talking with our medical correspondent elizabeth cohen and she tells me that essentially this means doctors can decrease the sedation for a few minutes to a few hour so is that doctors or authorities would be able to communicate with the patient. we've seen this before it
was hiding in and surrendered to authorities after about 25 minutes of negotiations with law enforcement. that's according to an official with knowledge of how he was taken into custody. we did know that authorities were having some type of dialogue with the suspect as he lay in that boat. we didn't know precisely how long it lasted, wolf. >> if the charges, joe, are actually filed today in the coming hour or two or three, will the justice department just make an announcement? will there be a news conference? do we have any indication how they're going to let the american public know that charges have been filed? >> we have been told that there's potential for a news conference, that is, of course, if the authorities go ahead and file those charges. it's not necessary for the suspect to actually be presented before a judge today, though these are extraordinary circumstances, and they could come up with any number of other provisions. so we'll have to wait and see. and that's what law enforcement authorities are telling us, wolf. >> and these are federal charges, joe, so the attorney gene
. very proud of the law enforcement community. as i said, 30 years on this job. i couldn't have been more proud last night when i drove home to be part of such a profession. >> i just want to wrap up a couple loose ends before i let you go. you have been very generous with your time, police chief. during the apprehension, did anymore explosives go off as far as you know? >> at the boat? no. >> no more gunfire at the boat. >> no. >> there was gunfire early on but there was no -- we don't know what's in that boat yet. there may be explosives. >> we heard reporters on the scene heard a volley of gun shots going off, maybe two dozen or so. who was firing those gun shots? >> it was back and forth. >> was he firing? >> my understanding, yes. he was firing. >> from the boat? >> right. through the plastic they saw him poking through the plastic if you will of the boat and then gunfire erupted. >> you say they had sophisticated vision equipment from a helicopter to see through the boat cover if you will to see if there was movement underneath? >> we knew there was a body in that boat through the s
owners and residents of this area have played a critical factor in the success law enforcement's investigation and it will be equally important as the city works to reclaim and restore boylston street. we have been working closely with business owners and the city business resource center to set up the park plaza. we'll also open up a mobile city hall close to the area for businesses to have more convenient access to representatives of the city. also a team has been in communication with the victims and the families and will continue to work with them as we move towards opening the area of boston for our public once again. i just want to say to my team behind me, thank you. you're doing a great job. last week or so all the agencies, and since friday, been working overtime making sure we have a plan that works to re-establish boylston street in the city of boston. i'll have rene who's working on all the plans. thank you. >> thank you, mayor. good afternoon. the city has been working the restoration an re-entry strategy for the copley area since last wednesday. a team comprised o
counter terrorism officer. we are hearing from local law enforcement that looks like the suspects were working alone. and that came from watertown police chief. he knows a lot of information, but can we say that at this point? >> congratulations to him and his officers, fantastic job, textbook job really. that's certainly the hope of everyone that they were operating alone, but i know that the fbi and others are concerned about the other explosives, for example, that were found in the apartment of the two brothers. >> how do you account for those, for the pressure cooker, the other weapons and all that stuff. >> exactly. it begs the question were they planning additional attacks? the third pressure cooker bomb they used in the pursuit, was that supposed to be deployed by a third person the day of the marathon? these are unanswered questions that i know law enforcement is working hard to try to resolve. >> could profiling have made a difference in this case? how do you determine if they were part of a larger cell? >> profiling is kind of a bad word, we don't like profiling. >> but you h
was to defend islam. all these claims are going to be verified by investigators or further investigated by law enforcement personnel. he says his older brother was the master mind. he's been charged in the deadly attacked. he's on a ventilator, but he's still communicating with investigators. tom, what do you make of what he's telling investigators? essentially blaming his brother. >> anderson, if that turns out to be true, they'll investigate intensetively to try to verify every statement he makes. in a way, it is good news because it means that there isn't an additional terrorist out there as part of this particular plot. and it also means that he didn't go back, or the older brother tamerlan didn't go back to the old country and over there get training, funding, encouragement, or direct orders to come back to the united states and wage an attack on the u.s. and on that regard, you have the group in chechnya, saying they didn't do it. they weren't behind this. if it is only limited to these two individuals, that is good to know. >> from your law enforcement background -- i have talked to a l

that it was from law enforcement officials that it may have been from a failed suicide attempt. have we learned anything new specifically on that? >> reporter: we have spoken to the hospital about that, they will not give us any information. i spoke with a boston police chief yesterday, ed davis, and asked him specifically about that. he said he couldn't comment on it. but it is in his neck. it is keeping him from speaking. we know there was gunfire exchange and flash grenades that went off, which has caused dzhokhar tsarnaev to not be able to hear. he's lost part of his hearing. but he fell six to seven feet from the boat and there was lots of blood. with all the questioning and everything you're talking about going on in the hospital and that he's -- he has this wound, and he is under medication, i asked a former fbi agent who worked with group, i said, what kinds of questions are they asking him right now? he says, i would imagine they're asking him about his brother's trips, about the rhetoric, about the associates, about plans, other devices, ultimate plan, others involved, about his dad,
of the quality of person he was. listen. >> i believe he had the calling. he just wanted to be in law enforcement. it wasn't about the pay or the benefits or the retirement. it was about what law enforcement was supposed to be all about, that's to help people. he was a master at helping people. i think m.i.t. lost someone that truly cared about their community. and i think we lost someone that we learned more from him than he ever learned from us. >> reporter: at 26 years old. >> at 26 years old. >> reporter: says a lot. >> i've been a cop for almost 40 years. you see a lot. you really do. i just never saw anything like this. it's heartbreaking. everything about it is just wrong. killing him was senseless, the loss of a person of his quality, his age, the fact that it happened on a college campus. everything about this is wrong. >> reporter: and, don, also tonight, we talked to three m.i.t. students that are alalso emts and they were close friends of collier. they came with flowers and messages for his family. interestingly what we learned is they not only were close friends of his, but they were
